of this kind of imminent threat, it requires me being off u.s. soil. >> right. there's a big distinction here, that's important to talk about. this memo only applies in situations where an american citizen is in a combat area. not even -- they can't do it in the streets of london. the memo talks about in a place that is essentially a war zone. >> but we don't have a declared war against these places. >> we do have authorization of use of military force against al qaeda. that's -- >> the zones. >> those are the areas. you know, yemen, afghanistan, formerly iraq, that's where we use those powers. but you talk about your phone calls, you have a -- they need a warrant to listen to your phone calls in the united states. but if you call yemen, they don't need a warrant. >> they can listen. what about mali, is that considered to be a place where, if you're planning an attack against me and you're safe, from i don't know, poughkeepsie, they can take you out there? >> the memo doesn't deal with na directly but you can bet the answer is yes. mali -- anywhere where we think al qaeda mig

to date on all this, this dates back to when lance was riding alongside floyd landis with the u.s. postal service team, and then he comes out with this confession, et cetera, and now this pursuit by the justice department. >> reporter: several years ago that former teammate, floyd landis, in a whistleblower lawsuit filed against lang armstrong and his sports teams and various associates, that was filed a couple of years ago. now lance armstrong's lawyers tell us they have been notified by the department of justice and told that the justice department is joining in on that lawsuit. this is interesting because about a year ago the justice department failed or decided not to pursue any criminal charges against lance armstrong, had given that up before the u.s. anti-doping agency put out its report which led to lance armstrong confessing in that televised interview back in january that, indeed, he had used performance enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career and winning those seven tour de france titles. now this is a move that could cost lance armstrong tens of millions of dollars. what

. joining me now, sister mary edwall, the director of media relations for the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. good morning, sister. >> good morning. >> i know pope benedict said he's resigning because of his health. some people there's more to this. pope john paul suffered from parkinson's disease. he died while still pope. do you care to speculate? >> i think pope benedict xvi saw what it was like to have a papacy when the man at the head of the church is so ill. there's a slowdown, so to speak, in getting the work done during the papacy of john paul ii and also during the papacy of paul vi. so i think his own experience with what it means to have someone at the helm who is not up to 24/7 because of his own physical limitations probably influenced him. he knew more than others what this really meant because he was right there in the vatican. >> there are some big issues the catholic church is dealing with now, if the new pope is italian, as italians will be pushing for, or american, as americans are pushing for, is it more likely that the church will bend on perhaps allowing more wo

in prison with a two by four studded with nails. let's get to the mental retartation thing. the u.s. supreme court said we don't put mentally retarded people to death but we'll let the states determine who's restarted and who's not. he was 70, borderline retardation. but how do you conduct yourself in ordinary life, seaman second class in the navy. described as the leader of his family. buys a car, a motorcycle. the judge says i don't find it beyond a reasonable doubt that he's mentally retarded. that's the back story. >> joey, it says, the defendant may be found guilty but mentally retarded. those are their words and thus spared the death penalty if the jury and the court finded beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty of the crime charged and is mentally retarded. those words seem crucial here. so is explain to me the difference between beyond a reasonable doubt, and preet ponderance of the evidence. what's the difference there? >> absolutely. what happens, john, we don't want the defendant feigning, right, pretending the. so georgia, the only state in the union, by the way,

of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in six years, they should confirm your u.s. attorney from minnesota, todd jones, who is here today, and who has been nominated for this post. these are common sense measures supported by democrats, republicans, and independents, and in many of them are response gun owners. we're seeing members of both parties putting aside their differences and work together to make many of them a reality. but if there is one thing i've learned over the last four years, it is that you can't count on anything in washington until it's done. and nothing is done yet. there has been a lot of talk, a lot of conversation, a lot of publicity, but we haven't actually taken concrete steps yet. the last week the senate held its first hearing since newtown on the need to address gun violence and the best way to move forward. the first people to offer testimony were gabby giffords and her husband mark kelly. they talked about how a complex problem like this has no single solution, but still had a ten-round limit on magazines, for example, the gunman who shot gabby may never have been ab
